No, it didn't! That day I just hadn't spotted that my spellchecker had
gone berserk and "corrected" lots of things.

I had noticed the similarity of "cellophane" and "cellphone".

BTW, I once posted about a Windows service called "LoadPowerProfile" and
my spell checker corrected it to "laryngectomize". The current one
suggests "waterproofing".

It's probably less common in the US, where I understand the common
term is cellophane, or cell for short; in the UK, it's mobile 'phone, or


"Cell" means cell/mobile phone. Never heard it as meaning cellophane.

And haven't heard of "cellophane" in probably decades. It's plastic
wrap, shrink wrap, etc.

"Cellophane" was actually a different kind of plastic, noticeably
less flexible.

Yes, cellophane is what cigarette packs used to be wrapped in. Are
they still? I don't know; it's been about 50 years since I last bought

Cellophane is a vegetable product, most plastic film wrap is either
PVC or LDPE which aren't.
